Watch List Weekly Recap 6/3/22
This is the Friday recap of Ty Burr’s Watch List postings for the week. If you’d like to receive this weekly email ONLY, please go to your account page and under “Email notifications” uncheck every box except “Weekly Digest.” If you’d prefer to not receive it at all, uncheck just “Weekly Digest.”
Note to readers: I’ll be taking a breather from the Watch List for the next three weeks and going someplace quiet and beachy with my family. A number of reviews and a podcast are loaded up for delivery during that time, and I may weigh in as events and impulse dictate. Otherwise, see you the week of June 27.
A different kind of summer movie preview (including “Elvis,” above) and some passing thoughts on the whimsicalities of being married to a movie critic.
Two new movies for your weekend consideration: “Emergency” (above), on Amazon Prime Video, is an intense seriocomic ride through America’s racial anxieties, while “Crimes of the Future,” in limited theatrical release (going wide next week), showcases David Cronenberg (“The Fly,” “Eastern Promises”) at his most transgressively dystopian.
Thanks for reading. Feel free to pass Ty Burr’s Watch List along to your friends.
